Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Damn Cablestops!

I just got a Jury frame and built it up as a fixed gear, so I have no use for the rear brake cable stops. I thought they were a little ugly but didn't really care. Today I was riding and the seem along the leg of my shorts caught it and tore a nice big hole in my last pair of unscathed dickies. Of course after that it continued to keep catching only making the hole bigger. If I ever get my frame powdercoated I'm cutting those MFers off! Oh well, lesson learned. Only ride in speedos.

Just go to a local muffler shop and give one of the mechanics $10 bucks to take their cutting torch to those cable stops.

You wear Dickies at work. Unless you were bike commuting at the time, you fail.

I actually was commuting to work, but in defense of dickies (rofl +12) I love them and wear the shorts all the time. Normally tough as nails and plain as poo. Just the way I like my clothes. Except for my speedos, I prefer them in leopard print.

High socks and rolled up jeans make you look more like an olde tyme butte-fayce. That's how I roll.
